Long-term care insurance is not right for everyone. For a small percentage of the population this coverage is an affordable and worthwhile type of insurance. Determining whether or not long-term care insurance is right for you won't be the only task at hand; looking for scams will also be a concern.
As you get older, the need for assistance in your everyday life increases. Whether it is in-home care or residing in a nursing home for a few months you will most likely need some way to pay for these types of services. In order to maintain long-term care insurance you must pay for them each and every year until death. Many policies are canceled by policyholders that are on fixed incomes and are simply unable to pay for the increasing premiums as they get older. If the only funds you are receiving were those from Social Security or SSI, then it would be wise to not purchase a policy. Also, if you find that every day purchases and paying for utilities makes you stretch your budget to the limit, you probably should stay clear of this policy. This type of policy is only right for someone who has significant assets they want to preserve for their family, remain independent, or just to spare their family the expense of a nursing home bill.
Comparing policies can prove to be difficult because every company is selling a different combination of benefits and coverage. Many companies offer to pay a fixed amount for each day you receive care, while others will cover a percentage of the overall cost of care or supply a specified amount. Beware of these types of policies unless they offer inflation protection. You see, if they do not account for the increasing cost of nursing home costs, then you are stuck with a policy that really does you no good.
Just like a standard healthcare plan, you will have to receive services at designated locations. If you go outside of this network they will simply refuse to pay for any care that you receive. If you have any type of mental disease or nervous disorder then don't expect many carriers to accept you (the one exception is Alzheimer's). There are more restrictions in this type of insurance than any other health insurance.
If this type of policy is right for you, please make sure that the company is reputable. There are many individuals who thrive on the fact that not many people will make an informed decision when it comes to purchasing long-term health insurance. Be sure to read the fine print and find out everything you can about the policy before committing to a company and a long-term health insurance plan.

"my tears of joy are flowing as I’m writing this mail. After reading your book. I had tremendous changes in my life. On 22/4/2011 I was diagnosed as a diabetes patient and was put on medication. Later one of my friends passed me your E-book which I digested all during my 8 hour-flight from Kuala Lumpur-Malaysia to Brisbane-Australia. After following your program I did another check-up in Brisbane on 03/06/2011 and I was amazed by my lab results. My doctor told me that I am no longer diabetic, that I am free of diabetes and that I can stop all the medications. Matt I am deeply grateful to you for creating this fantastic E-book for everybody. Please let me know when you are in Australia, Fiji or New Zealand. I will be your testimonial because I want to help you let as many diabetes patients know that diabetes can be cured. God bless your noble work. Here is proof from Saravanen’s medical reco
rds once he learned from his doctor the he was, after following this program for a free weeks, DIABETES FREE!"

"After being a diabetic for many many years, I’m extremely happy to report that thanks to your book, my blood tests are now showing that I am completely free of diabetes. Saying thank you does not seem to be strong enough. But God bless you and your work, just begins to express my feelings.”
"I'm so glad I found your ebook on the web. I have been a type 2 diabetic sufferer for many years. Thirty days after following your program, I can report the following results: - Blood glucose dropped from 310 to 98 - Blood pressure lowered 10 points on the top and the bottom - Cholesterol dropped 16 points. Your “How To Reverse Diabetes” plan is a BREAKTHROUGH and a true Blessing.” Thank you for all your help. My family and I are forever grateful.”
John who struggled with Type 1 diabetes says:
"I found out I had Diabetes Type I at age 20. I can honestly say, I have never felt healthy since I was diagnosed. So I begin reading this 106 page program, and I'm stunned by the reason I have never felt healthy and energetic ALL MY LIFE (let alone since I was diagnosed with Type I Diabetes). I think if I’d known what the underlying cause was 20 years ago, I would have never developed Type I diabetes in the first place. I could have changed the diabetes symptoms in a few days with only small changes to my diet and lifestyle. Matt first clearly explains what is wrong with drugs and the health system in general. When I was first reading it, I didn’t understand what this all had to do with Diabetes, but in fact it has EVERYTHING to do with diabetes. It has to do with ALL disease. The next section he goes into the details of health from a cellular level. Why are you tired all the time? How can you change it? What five ingredients does your body absolutely need? Matt then goes into the foods you should eat and the ones you should avoid to reverse your diabetes condition. I was surprised to hear a lot of common diabetes diet food myths debunked. Then came the part where the author describes the reason for several diseases including diabetes. Again I was glued to the screen to learn the reason I was diabetic in the first place. Now I know why I have diabetes and could have changed it years ago. Then the book gives a ten step formula to reverse (cure) diabetes (yes, even cure Type I or drastically reduce your need for insulin). This book may very well have saved my life.”
